The Men Who Stare At Goats

General Brown: 

So they started doing psy-research because they thought we were doing psy-research, when in fact we weren't doing psy-research?

Brigadier General Dean Hopgood: 

Yes sir. But now that they are doing psy-research, we're gonna have to do psy-research, sir.

[leans forward]

Brigadier General Dean Hopgood: 

We can't afford to have the Russian's leading the field in the paranormal.

LYN CASSADY (George Clooney):
Have you heard of Optimum Trajectory before? 
(No answer) 
Your life is like a river, Bob. If you’re aiming for a goal that isn’t your destiny, you will always be swimming against the current. 
Young Ghandi wants to be a stock-car racer? Not gonna happen. Little Anne Frank wants to be a High School teacher. Tough titty Anne. That’s not your destiny. But you will go on to move the hearts and minds of millions.

He unbuttons his shirt and reveals an EYE tattooed on his chest – very similar to the one Bob had drawn. Bob looks up.
LYN CASSADY continues:

There's a story that Wong Wifu, the great Chinese martial artist... had a fight with a guy and beat him. Then the guy gave him this light tap. Wong looked at him and the guy just nodded. That was it. He had given him the death touch. Wong died.

Then and there?

No. About eighteen years later. That's the thing about Dim Mak... you never know when it's gonna take effect.
